For the first time this year, took the time to get takeout from my favorite joint in Greeneville. However, my contact wasn’t anywhere to be found; looks like she sold the place to someone different. Nobody even remembered who she was, which definitely let me know something was up.
Still, the food tasted as normal. Got my standard fare of scallion chicken, wonton, vegetable lo mein, ginger chicken wings, shrimp and spring rolls. While this will be helping with creative stuff tonight, I do feel sad that one of three people I knew by name in that town is gone, and without warning. Time will tell if I like how the place is run in the future.
It’s been a good bit since I’ve eaten lo mein made with meat inside of it, and most of those times it ends up in disaster (usually being rancid). But on my outing to Orlando, we had Chinese takeout for dinner. I took shrimp lo mein with some chicken wings as my dish.
To my utter surprise, the entire thing was fantastic. The noodles were very tasty, the shrimp great and the chicken wings even greater. I unfortunately didn’t get to have them again before I left, but I highly recommend checking China Tea out, right in the Publix Shopping Plaza off of University Dr. I loved it so much, I’m even giving you GPS coordinates to go find them yourself. Enjoy.
For Inktober’s #5 Chicken, I kind of copped out on it. But, chicken wings are tasty, especially when freshly pulled off the grill. So in this case, drew from subject matter I knew and liked instead of going for something new.
For my first company dinner, the group went out to Timberwood Grill. It actually was a great place to eat, and I had spiffy food of buffalo wings, along with fish and chips. All in all it was a good experience, and I would recommend.
Right before snapping this picture, a coworker was announcing that “I was taking pictures of my food” in a mocking and obnoxious manner. Yeah, whats-your-name. I will take pictures of my food if I like. Just the same way you can take dozens of photos of your kids.
Personal advice from me. Let people mind their own business in peace sometimes, and don’t be a loudmouth about it just because you can. Thank you.
This was an interesting dish I got to munch earlier today; and it felt even more rewarding since I cooked most of it myself!
The main dish was tuna pasta salad; yeast flakes, onions, mayo and canned tuna. Veggies were a bag of mixed beans n’ potatoes that you’d microwave in a bag. And the chicken side is just Wing Dings from Walmart.
Pretty good afternoon lunch if I would say so myself.
